years ago. did john mccain attend anything last time in 2009? >> reporter: did. he attended the inaugural ceremony. he was also at the luncheon that follows the inaugural ceremony here in the capitol, in statuary hall, and not uncommon to see certainly a senator. if a senator happened to run for president, not uncommon to see them still come to the inauguration, even if they did lose, because they are senators. as i mentioned, most senators do show up. this is seen usually often as a non-partisan event and so yes, senator mccain was there in 2009. >> athena jones, thank you very much. we appreciate it athena. >>> so as president obama enters his second term, how are we doing as a country? how are we doing as a country? you will see what some people are thinking. >>> plus, one republican says that president barack obama has a king complex. our cnn contributors weigh in. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you don't have to be a golf pro to walk like one. ♪ when you walk 10,000 steps a day, it's the same as walking a professional golf course. humana. health and well-being partner
mccain and jehmu greene a fox news contributed. thanks for joining us. so the senator mentioned executive orders we need to clarify not one of the 23 actions issued by the president is an actual executive order. however, the white house did issue three presidential memoranda. one, improving availability of relevant executive branch records to the national criminal background system, tracing of firearms in criminal investigations and engaging in research on the causes and prevention of gun violence. what is the difference between a presidential memorandum, not much. did a lot of research on this today. executive orders in all but name. the main difference executive order has to be published, a memorandum only if the president determines they have, quote, general applicability and legal effect. that being said, ford, what chance does the president's gun agenda have? >> not very much background checks. he is easy painting house republicans as obstructionists and we're gloss go over a lot of tensions within the democratic controlled senate. you have senators on the democratic side l
than 500. there was a point where i think we all wished john mccain had won because he made a few -- he made a lot fewer promises. we took the 500, and for the past but for years, in a product that i think is unprecedented in american journalism, we have been following them, calling people, tracking these things, digging into the budget, and really coming up with the definitive report card on how president obama has done in his first term. host: here is the obameter from politifact. 47% of promises kept, the total in the category for those pledges being kept or even in the works is 72%, 73%. guest: it is really a surprise, i think. it is hard to compare to anything because we did not apply the same methodology to previous presidents. but i have got to say, when we saw over the holidays that it was that high, we were really struck that, particularly in an era of dysfunction and gridlock in congress, that president obama had fulfilled or at least partially fulfilled so many -- as you said, 73%. we will talk more about why that is, but i think if you talk to experts who have done this on a
years of george w. bush, looking at john mccain there was no way in the world democrats are going to not unite behind obama. >> we will always, always remember where we were when barack obama became president of united states. >> [newscaster] look at this crowd. this is the best of american patriotism. >> [rallygoer] my grandmother is 96 years old and she never would have thought it. my mother is 67 years old. and she said in her lifetime she never thought it would happen. >> if there is anyone out there who still doubts that america's a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer. it's been a long time coming. but tonight because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to america. this is our moment. this is our time to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids, to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace, to reclaim the american dream and reaffirm that fundamental
. if they seem dressed fairly lightly, there are some regional -- there's john mccain, dianne feinstein, there's some regional heaters in that area. there are blankets provided, as we heard. andrea mitchell is there. we'll keep alternating between this camera and the white house doorway so we don't miss a thing. and andrea, you're seeing the senate leadership fill in. >> yeah. just as senator kerry is coming in and some of the other senators, let me give you an idea of the schedule. there will be a change of power at the state department, as you know, on wednesday of this week. hillary clinton is going before the senate and the house. she's going to be here today in her role both as a former first lady and as the secretary of state. she's going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. on thursday before the committee that he chairs still, senator kerry will be introduced by secretary clinton for his confirmation hearing. we're told then that the vote on senator kerry as secretary of state is expected to glide through. next tuesday, that will take place. and wednesday, there will be the chang
't say that. there is john mccain who knows something about losing to barack obama, he did it four years ago. but it strikes me -- i guess i was stuck to the degree that this was an unyielding and compromising of an espousal. i basically thought to myself that it was a poetic version of a speech he would make accepting the nomination of the democratic national convention, saying this is what i want and if i get to be elected, now, he has been elected and inaugurated, this is what i intend to do. bret: what you do is you go general. you articulate widely agreeable themes. there's actually some of the little bit more like the state of the union address specific sites of things that he thinks ought to be done. this was somewhere of a typical inaugural address and you may make general reference to programs but it's usually veiled in such a way that you are not accused of sticking your i in your critics >> we talk about how the party should come together. how they should not talk over each other.
